They’re mountains that weigh, on my heart to slay;
To grieve me despite, all that’s suffered mute.
Pains of malice crawling, with pincers raze.
My eyes wander, collide with yours for clues.
How can we escape this unending hike?
Death march, end unknown; follow the leader.
Or, slip away through vapid mindless might;
Catch melodic tweets, delight a dreamer.
Let not endless trees’ tangle– no ‘good-death’;
Let not poison Venus shrill;
Leave heat-exhaustion, shallow fettered breath,
Pincers lingering, swipe through brushes –fight.
For we’re warriors fierce, Amazonian’s who thrive;
Not aimless birds, astray in shallow wilds.
